Who decides what the right due diligence is? One organization for *all*
topics, ever?

An RDF vocabulary can be created by the proper community, i.e. a music
vocabulary by music experts, a copyright vocabulary by copyright
experts, a biomedical vocabulary by biomedical experts, rather than
assuming that one central group should be the centralized bottleneck for
all development.

In other words, RDF vocabularies function like the web does:
decentralized, let the best sites/vocabs win.
